Chapter 1

Budgeting

Talk to your loved ones about what your dreams are: It seems like an odd way to save money, but think about it. If you spend time with the people you love the most and come to some consensus about your dreams, it becomes easy for you all to plan for it. If you’re all planning and working together towards this dream, it becomes easier to stay focused on it and reach it. Set a big, audacious goal together and encourage each other to be financially fit – soon, you’ll find you’re doing it naturally and your dreams are coming closer than ever.

Plan your purchases: Has the $100 spent on a dress for fresher’s night left you broke? Simple mathematics and a bit of planning could have helped you avoid the situation.  Cutting down your expenses by $25 every month would have saved you $100 in just four months and made the dress affordable. Planning ahead is an easy way to prevent bankruptcy.

Set savings goals: For short-term goals, this is easy. If you want to buy a video game, find out how much it costs; if you want to buy a vehicle, determine how much of a down payment you’ll need.  For long-term goals, such as retirement, you’ll need to do a lot more planning (figuring out how much money you’ll need to live comfortably for 20 or 30 years after you stop working), and you’ll also need to figure out how investments will help you achieve your goals.

Establish a time-frame: Set a particular date for accomplishing shorter-term goals, and make sure the goal is attainable within that time period. If it’s not attainable, you’ll just get discouraged.

Plan: Figure out how much you’ll have to save per week, per month, or per paycheck to attain each of your savings goals. Take each thing you want to save for and figure out how much you need to start saving now. For most savings goals, it’s best to save the same amount each period. For example, if you want to put a $20,000 down payment on a home in 36 months (three years), you’ll need to save about $550 every month. But if your paychecks amount to $1000, it might not be a realistic goal, so adjust your time-frame until you come up with an approachable amount.

Keep a record of your expenses: What you save falls between two activities and their difference is how much you make and how much you spend. Since you have more control over how much you spend, it's wise to take a critical look at your expenses.  Write down everything you spend your money on for a couple of weeks or a month. Be as detailed as possible, and try not to leave out small purchases. Assign each purchase or expenditure a category such as: Rent, Car insurance, Car payments, Phone Bill, Cable Bill, Utilities, Gas, Food, Entertainment, etc.

Keep a small notebook with you at all times. Get in the habit of recording every expense and saving the receipts. Sit down once a week with your small notebook and receipts. Record your expenses in a larger notebook or a spreadsheet program.

There are also many applications you can download to your phone that will help you keep track of your expenses.  Trim your expenses. Take a good, hard look at your spending records after a month or two have passed. You’ll probably be surprised when you look back
